Founded in 1984, the mission of CASA is to provide highly trained volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children moving through the child welfare system. The agency’s goals/outcomes for the year include: 95% of CASA Volunteers will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the court process, the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences and trauma on families, and trauma-informed advocacy strategies upon completion of CASA training as indicated by a post-training assessment. 90% of volunteers will indicate at the close of a case that they received the support, supervision and resources they needed from CASA staff to properly perform their duties as a CASA, as indicated in self-reports. CASA recommendations will be accepted and implemented by the court in at least 90% of cases. An average of 95% of children who exit care in accordance with CASA’s recommendations to the court will remain in stable placements for 6 months after exiting state custody.
